Spark - Timing light on the tip of each wire near the plug with show all cylinders are getting spark (timing is another issue). However a timing light on 1 cyl will show if the chain jumped.

Air- Have to assume intake is ok... anything in the exhaust that could be plugged?

Compression - run a compression test and a leakdown test.
its getting fuel, there is plenty of pressure and the bowl has fuel in it. we checked each spark plug with a timing light and they all worked as the should. Nothing is plugging the exhaust it is coming out how it should. we ran a compression test and all the cylinders were good, around 130 psi.
